Brew Notes

Best poured slowly, 1845 delivers a sweet, fruit cake aroma, a dark tawny colour and a dry finish that sings of spices and raisin. Those fruity characteristics harmonise perfectly with the biscuity malts amid a clever and complex range of subtle flavours, the depth of which you could only find in a live beer fermented in the bottle.

Raise a Glass

Matured for 100 days prior to its release, allowing the character and depth of flavour to develop into something truly special. It’s brewed with amber malt - a popular 19th century ingredient that’s now thriving once again. 1845 is the beer that started its renaissance.

Bootiful, just bootiful

I enjoy hand pulled beer BUT even though I have a very very good real ale pub close by my palate regularly craves the taste of a traditional pint of bitter as opposed to new age, new world IPAs (as good as they are). This is why I like 1845 so much. Pour it and let it stand in the fridge for 30 to 45 minutes and it tastes just like a hand pulled pint, as all the gas has left it. Bootiful, just bootiful!

1845

Excellent full bodied beer, with lots of flavour. Be good if you could keep the flavour at a lower strength

CELEBRATE HISTORY

A majestic example of bottle-conditioned ale, 1845’s crowning glory lies in its origins. The inaugural hops were added to the copper by HRH The Prince of Wales during his 1995 brewery visit
